Celebrity. Spotlight. Fame. Money. Glamorous lifestyle. Like almost all young people, and I mean everyone, the desire to be famous, to be in the spotlight and under the cameras, with millions of fans around the world following your social media coverage and clinging to your every move.
Step back for a moment and imagine that you are truly blessed with the talent to captivate audiences, viewers, and the whole world and that you are living this dream from a very young age. But somehow, along the way, the decision is made to end this journey and not be in the spotlight anymore. Anyway, that’s exactly what happened to child actress Brittany Ashton Holmes when she left the movies for a shot of normal life.
Brittany was born on Monday 27 February 1989. She was born in California, United States of America. As far as her parents are concerned, who they are, and what professions they had and still have, she does not have much in common in this respect.
The details of her family history, who her siblings are, and what her early childhood looks like are also somewhat blurred. What we do know, however, is that whatever name she may have made for herself and made herself so popular with millions of people, she achieved all this before she was even ten years old. Just imagine if she had decided to go on.
The film that put Brittany in the spotlight was Little Rascals, produced by Universal Pictures. The film became a box-office hit with gross proceeds of $63.7 million. Including the cast of the film: Bug Hall, Travis Tedford, Kevin Jamal Woods, Blake Jeremy Collins, Jordan Warkol, Zachary Mabry, Ross Elliot Bagley, Courtland Mead, Sam Saletta, Blake McIver Ewing, Juliette Brewer, Heather Karasek, and the current US President Donald Trump.
Lesser Known Facts About Brittany Ashton Holmes
1. Some acts in today’s world may need a few cracks in the showbiz industry before they make it big, but not for Brittany Ashton Holmes. She made a name for herself with her very first movie. The film was “The Little Rascals” in 1994, in which Brittany was cast in the role of Darla.
2. Many talented and less talented actors and actresses come and go when time keeps ticking. Not many of them get the chance to be recognized for what they have finally dedicated their lives to. In the case of the Brittany-Ashton Holmes biography, however, the film The Little Rascals was a great success, which synonymously linked real-life Brittany with fictional Darla. She received the award “The Young Artist” for the “Best Performance by a Young Ensemble” in a feature film.
Brittany was cast together with Bug Hall, who played the role of Alfalfa. Unlike most other members of the cast, Bug has appeared in films since then, playing roles in shows such as Charmed, The OC, CSI: Miami, 90210, and Nikita. The bug also starred in the series Harley and the Davidsons, a historic series about motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson.
3. You may think retirement should be reserved for the old and elderly. In 1996, Brittany retired from acting after being at the center of theatre life. She did so with the vision and dream of leading a normal life, and it seems that she is doing just that by studying political science.
4. As with most celebrities who have come into the limelight because of their talent, there is much crying out about who might or might not have been in her life. With Brittany Ashton, it is no different because many people want to know who “little Darla” has in a romantic sense in her life. However, there is not much to say about who she might be seeing, as she wants to keep her private life private in this way.
5. Brittany in her short career has been cast in four films between the ages of five and seven. Many would consider this an achievement. It is a pity that she did not choose a long career.
